"vaan nostakoon Kristus sinua" (but may Christ lift thee up)

Hey Family :) This week has been a lot of preparation for what is coming this following week: help leading a zone training meeting (we are focusing on teaching the doctrine from the scriptures rather than just using the scriptures to back up what we say---also on what we learned from the mission tour when Elder Johnson and Elder Sabin came and taught us), the Finland youth Superi (we are teaching a class in this giant activity for all the youth of finland), and our baptism on friday (yay, our finnish young man investigator is getting baptized! One of my favorite things he shared with us recently is how he came to know that God is our loving Heavenly Father and the Jesus Christ is the savior of the world. He talked about how he read diligently in the New Testament and bore powerful testimony of how it felt so right and good. It was a good reminder of the scripture's power.). Also on friday we get change calls (therefore next p-day will actually be on monday just as a heads up). Things are crazy busy, but crazy good. It is wonderful to see little tender mercies such as a thought of what to share to in investigator, or a perfect scripture to base a discussion off of in a meeting. I'm so grateful the Heavenly Father helps us in fulfilling his work.
Also, just one really cool scripture that stood out to me this week was Moroni 9:25. "My son, be faithful in Christ; and may not the things which I have written grieve thee, to weigh thee down unto death; but may Christ lift thee up, and may his sufferings and death, and the showing his body unto our fathers, and his mercy and long-suffering, and the hope of his glory and of eternal life, rest in your mind forever." I think it is such a wonderful explanation of what having faith in Christ means.
Thank you for your emails and support :) I love you and hope you have a great week!
